Stitching and DeStashing--Week 36, 2019

It feels so good to report some stash usage this week and NO NEW FABRIC ADDED TO THE STASH! There have been too many new additions lately; it's time to get back to using more than adding!

My usage for the past week was 3 yards for Kevin's Scrappy Summer Mystery, which needs to be photographed so I can share it here. I also used 3/8 yard for the Framed Crumb Star that showed up in yesterday's post, plus this Flying Dutchman variation that I made a couple weeks ago and never counted.

Flying Dutchman variation
12" block

Used last week:                         3.375 yards
Used year to date:                    40.125 yards
Added last week:                           0.0 yards
Added year to date:                    50.75 yards
Net stashed year to date:        10.625 yards

Kate's 15 Minutes to Stitch challenge at Life in Pieces has us tracking how many days each week we get in at least 15 minutes of quilting time. The schedule at work has let up a bit, and I managed to get some time for quilting every single day!

15 Minute Challenge:  
9/1 - 9/7                  7 of 7 days
2019 Total         234 of 250 days

Happy quilting everyone!

  1. Love your Dutchman variation! The colors are so calming.

  2. I've never seen that flying Dutchman variation. Love it.

  3. You've done a pretty job at balancing the in and the out in terms of the stash. Even with all the extra work hours the last month, you've done well with finding those few minutes to stitch here and there. Hopefully things will even out at work and you won't have to be "fitting" in that time just on the train.

  4. Interesting variation of a Flying Dutchman block! Good for you on the stash- I am there with you not adding!

  5. Very pretty block! So, if you make a zillion cutting mistakes that use up half of your yardage, does that count as moving yardage out of your studio? Or does only the fabric that gets cut correctly and ends up in a project count?
